About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Right now I am traveling indefinitely until the money runs out. Really interested in traveling to Eastern Europe and riding the Trans-Siberian railway is possible.

ABOUT ME

One my of my main steady passions is for learning whether it's from the internet, books, life, and especially other people. There's nothing I like more than meeting someone and listening to them tell me about their life what it is they like to do. I have a real desire to pursue my other great passion for playing music. I play mainly Guitar but also Bass and like to say I have main influences of rock, blues, and experimental music.

PHILOSOPHY

Attempt to be open to new people and experiences, practice kindness and forgiveness, and focus on living in today and not tomorrow or yesterday.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've participated in events in Austin and have couchsurfed in Europe and the United States

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've mainly couchsurfed and met couchsurfers in Europe and have had great experiences every time. I've also gone to events in the Austin community in the past. I definitely want to start participating more and hopefully hosting people when I have a living situation that works for it.

Interests

I am interested in music, listening to and playing. I've been playing guitar for many years and can play a few other instruments. I like reading about practically anything and don't favor a particular genre. I also like doing active things like exploring, hiking, and going out and having a good time. I'm usually pretty content wherever I am.

Some topıcs I`m ınterested ın are: traveling, people, geography, politics, science, psychology, food, humor, history, art, games, so many more

Music, Movies, and Books

An old favorite is Jimi Hendrix. Other bands and musicians I really like are David Bowie, Sly & the Family Stone, MC5, Sonic Youth, The Replacements, James Brown, The Stooges, and The Rolling Stones. Generally I wıll like music thats expressive and is intrinsically genuine, maybe even a bit clever too. Something you can appreciate in many different ways. A few genres I've really been into lately are funk music and 60's soul and R&B. I do like electronic music too but just don't know much about it and am trying really *really* hard to get into music that's actually current.

Books ıs same deal as movies. I`ve been readıng a lot lately though since I began traveling, just anything I can get my hands on.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Some of my most favorite places and things I've done:
bungee jumping into a river gorge in Nepal, Varanasi, Hampi, The Hagia Sofia, The AlHambra, New Orleans, Marrakesh(especially Jamaa El-Fna), Scenery of New Mexico, going to and meeting people in the west bank, Wadi Rum, Karnak temple in Luxor, Guanajuato, hiking in the Dolomites

Countries I’ve Visited

China, Egypt, India, Israel, Jordan, Mexico, Morocco, Nepal, Philippines, Turkey
